Supercap and White LED and Energy Harvesters

This is a educative and simple example to help learn about supercaps and white LED. It will also help you understand component behavior. If you are learning electronics, try this one out.

The goldcap-Dynamo Lamp idea is a DIY Tutorial by Kainka on Electrical Energy Harvesting. What may be this EH Thing ?

Supercap and White LED and Energy Harvesters

Energy harvesting (also known as power harvesting or energy scavenging) is the process by which energy is derived from external sources (e.g., solar power, thermal energy, wind energy, salinity gradients, and kinetic energy), captured, and stored for small, wireless autonomous devices, like those used in wearable electronics and wireless sensor networks. – EH at Wikipedia

Then the Cycle Dynamo may not be the ideal choice for furthering this research. The reason being, this is quite a powerful source of energy, especially when going downhill!

Electric Double Layer Capacitor – EDLC

We need a more fussy source of Electricity. Like the waves of the sea, that could splash onto Large plates of Springy Beryllium Copper Cantilevers, which moves an Array of Magnets in coils (Reverse of Solenoids). This gives Random Spurts of High Energy Pulses which have to be Harvested.

Piezoelectric Energy Harvester – Mide Technology

That is for you to dare and do …….. Now let me give some things you can read, before you start this epic Adventure…

Now Move ! There is so much Abundant Energy to be Harvested. You can Even Setup a Roadside Electric Trike Recharging Station. – Gomier Electric Tricycle

We need more contests, An LED Lighting Contest and a Sponsored Elekrik Vehicle (Non-Car) Super-Contest.

Tone generation using 89C2051 – AirBorn

This is a nice educational reference project based on 89C2051, an 8051 derivative. This uses the Uses analog switches to steer test tones and results. Programmed in assembler to produce pure 1khz tone.

Using a multimeter

“The example meter that we are demonstrating is typical of many economical digital multimeters that you can purchase, hopefully these instructions will be of some use to you no matter what brand or type of meter you use. “

My Notes

Students and Hobbyists can study all the example projects and tutors in this site to become more skillful. They have pages that show how a PCB is made and things like Circuit Design and Prototyping. This Site also happens to be one of the oldest resources in the web for Electronic Embedded Designs.
